Community College ESOL Faculty/Staff Network
At the MATSOL Conference in May 2012, a group of community college faculty met to discuss issues that are important to community colleges in Massachusetts.

There is a lot of energy and expertise at our Massachusetts community colleges, and it is evident that our ESL/ESOL programs and personnel contribute greatly to the Commonwealth. It is an important time for us to come together and work on issues that are relevant to us, to our programs, and especially, to our students. With the backing of MATSOL, Massachusetts community college ESL/ESOL programs can have a strong support network and have a louder voice on issues of import. It is a great opportunity to work together once again.
